A Ring You Can Eat

This gorgeous ring is made from a dried beet and is edible! Go look at all these other cool pieces made from dehydrated fruit too. It's such a good idea to make jewelry that is both beautiful and nutritious. It's so much more useful than a conventional ring — like you could chew on it instead of your nails when you get nervous! Or you could wear it on a fancy date where you and your handsome billionaire boyfriend go on a helicopter tour of an exotic wilderness. Then when your helicopter crashes, you guys will have to survive off of nothing but rainwater you catch with leaves, your edible ring, and, of course, your love. And you'll totally make it, mostly because of the ring, and after you get rescued he'll buy another dried beet to replace the one you guys ate, and then he'll use the ring to propose, and obviously you say yes, because, hello! Let me be the first to say: "Congratulations. How wonderful."

You can replace the Ring Pop on my hand with this dessicated monstrosity when I am cold and dead.


This is what a Ring Pop is for. And candy necklaces. Which I will both wear when I volunteer at that summer camp for disadvantaged teens and inadvertently make many of them fall in love with me.

I don't need to know what we're talking about because it's Friday. Okay?


I think everyone at The Hairpin is hungover - because I have not, as of yet, been told what to do with my allowance this week. :(

I read it at first as 'dried beef' which sounds way better.


@Jon Custer Me too, Jon Custer. Me too.

Ok. After like 6 mo of lurking, I think it's funny that this post is what makes me register, but it just broke my resistance. Cassie's got the whole endearing hairpin tone sort of boiled down here.


@Being They're Your name is the best thing ever.

@melis Thanks! I figured tHP is a super safe space for whimsical references.


So I had no idea what 'beet' was, but google says it's beetroot. Good to know. Nasty stuff. That ring looks really pissed off and sorta like Cthulhu. Generally, food stuffs attached to my person is just asking for trouble. If I'm typing and it's just bobbing there in front of me...I'd fear for my fingers.


@DearyMe You've never heard of a beet? Do you live in a cave in the desert?
